Winter in Lofoten - Landscapes and Whales

Come with me to the Norwegian Arctic Circle, and photograph the dramatic Lofoten Islands. We’ll spend 5 days seeking jagged mountain peaks, and then 3 days photographing whales in Andenes. You’ll photograph icy fjords and frozen lakes, rocky seacoast, turquoise water, white sand beaches, rustic fishing villages, and more. If we’re lucky and the weather is clear, we will be treated to some of the best northern lights on the planet. After five days and nights in the magnificent landscape photographer’s paradise of Lofoten, we’ll head even further north into the Arctic Circle, to Andenes, to photograph the Orcas and humpback whales that come into the fjord to feed on the abundant herring. You will venture out into the bay in  state-of-the-art watercraft specifically designed for photographing these amazing sea creatures. This workshop will be expertly led and guided by me with assistance from Cody Duncan, who has logged more days in Lofoten than most anyone! Most shooting locations are very near to where we’ll park our minivans. You’ll need to be able to walk on uneven and at times slippery ground. There will be some opportunities for the more adventurous types to hike or climb a little bit.

We will teach techniques in: high dynamic range shooting, panoramas, long exposures during the day (and night!), star and aurora shooting, wildlife action, and more. Shooting is our priority, so expect to be out in the field plenty! We will feature image reviews and critiques, and post-processing instruction with Lightroom. Get ready for an other-worldly experience in Norway!
